  • LETTER : False memory claims: a dangerous diversion
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

  • LEADING ARTICLE : Care endangering the community
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

  • LEADING ARTICLE : Getting back on the rails
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

  • LETTER : False memory claims: a dangerous diversion
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

    From In the mid-1890s, in the words of a leading Freud historian, he "was guiltyof suggesting the possibility of incest" to patients he claimed to have been sexually abused in early childhood. Although he retracted most of these claims, it was not be...

  • LETTER : Our locum was Hastings Banda
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

  • LETTER : Art at St Ives is all about experience
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

    What is significant about the Tate St Ives is not the amount of detail revealed in the labelling, nor the academic structuring of their displays, but that throughout one has the excitement of feeling a part of an event, or series of events. The empha...

  • Tripped up by the whingeing Scots
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

    Had this happened during an election campaign, it would have been a turning-point: if Labour hasn't been badly scared by the anti-Scottish Home Rule hysteria of the past week, it should have been. Here is a warning and, if the warning isn't taken ser...

  • LEADING ARTICLE : Clouds over Felipe's reign in Spain
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

  • LETTER : Remember those still held in Iraq
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

  • LETTER : False memory claims: a dangerous diversion
    Tuesday, 17 January 1995

    "False memory" can all too easily be used as a get out. We know false allegations occur but they are uncommon. What is not at all uncommon are false denials. So why is there a knee-jerk reaction always to focus on the less frequent of the possibiliti...

  • Let the referendum bandwagon roll
    Monday, 16 January 1995
